Class Descriptions

Hatha Ease yourself into a nice gentle yoga class working on your mind body spirit connection while increasing your flexibility with each breath.

Intro to Yoga This program is designed for those who have never practiced Yoga before. We will guide students through postures, breathing techniques and meditation in a safe and comfortable environment.

Next Steps This is the follow up to our Intro to Yoga program. Classes offer a gentle challenge with progressively deeper work in postures, breathing techniques and meditation. Ideal for individuals relatively new to yoga and also for the more experienced who’d like to focus on alignment and mindfulness.

Noon Yoga These mid-day classes will clear the mind and rejuvenate the body; ideal for those on the go! We will move through familiar postures to open the body, deepen our core strength and take some calming breath.

Restorative Yoga is less physically challenging and all about relaxation. This class is much more difficult mentally, as it is very meditative. It is important to allow the body to rest so that it can function optimally. As a society we live in our Sympathetic Nervous System, the fight or flight system, the stressed out nervous system. Restorative yoga helps us move into our Parasympathetic Nervous System, where we need to be in order to sleep, rest, digest, and recover. Treat yourself to some relaxation.

Rise & Shine This early morning class is designed to wake up the body and mind for the day ahead. Flowing from one pose to the next using the breath, we’ll open hips and shoulders, stretch out the body and focus the mind.

Vinyasa In this dynamic class, the breath guides every movement. Through a unique blend of seated, standing, balancing, and reclining postures, the mind and body feel both energized and refreshed.

Yin Yoga will aim to bring a deeper awareness to your body and mind. Generally done in a variety of seated/floor postures that are held for a duration of 3 to 5 minutes, it targets the connective tissues of the hips, pelvis, and lower spine.

Yoga Mechanics Have you ever wondered how and why we do certain postures in yoga? Looking at the mechanics of poses can be a helpful way of building a deeper yoga practice. This will be a ‘workshop’ style class, focusing on anatomy and build-ups to more challenging poses.

Yoga Re-Balance Start your week off consciously by activating your alignment and opening your heart. Classes begin with a thorough warmup, followed by creative asana sequences, pranayama (breathing exercises) and a brief meditation. Suitable for all students.

Yoga of the Eternal Youth
This is one of the yoga’s of illumination as taught by the great  mystic, Almine. She states, “the purpose of this yoga is to remove linear time-the primary cause of aging and decay. In removing the opposites of movement and stillness by balancing them, we cancel them out to reveal a state of rejuvenation.”. The postures alternate between stillness and movement.

  1. Hi – yes the Winter schedule is still in effect, the only difference is the “program” class changes which are noted on the site. Spring session is coming soon!

  2. Iam inquiring in regards to your noon yoga sessions, if myself and possible a co-worker were to do drop in classes, how do we know there will be room? As well as price, and we bring our own matt? Thanks sara

    1. Whups. I meant to add. That there usually is space for drop-ins – and if it is tight we can always skooch down to make room 🙂 Drop-ins are $11 each session. You are welcome to bring your own mat – but we also have a selection of studio mats for your convenience.

      Hope to see you there!
